    "An elemental, and the forge," Grack replies to Tarak's question. "This map is of the forge area, to the east and below from where we are now. We have little knowledge of the mountain door's defenses, I'm afraid; I got captured attempting to scout it."

    "Yes, eating is a good idea." As Grack and Suga speak, Feagon asks in a low voice to Tarak "How difficult do you think dealing with an elemental will be?"
    A little louder he asks Grack "Is it an earth or fire elemental?"

    Tarak

    Lost in his own thoughts and confusion over the crude map, Tarak barely catches Feagon's question, "Uh...what? Oh, um...elementals are cagey, instinctual beings, and will pose some unique challenges. They're immune to a great many things, but usually solitary, but difficult to catch unawares or off guard."

    To Suga, "I'm in agreement that we should clear the area behind us, if that's what you mean by clearing the Mountain Door first. I don't like our current situation, feels like we're pinned in here."

    Grack goes into one of the back rooms, emerging shortly dressed in leather armor and with a shortsword at his side.

    "Back to the mountain door, then," he says. "If I haven't come back within two days, assume we all died fighting the dglinkarz."

    He leads you back to the cavern where you descended and climbs the damp, slippery stairs back into the room with the corpses of the stirges.

    Retracing their steps to the upper level, the hobgoblin keeps his kamas at the ready.

    Turning to Grack. "Know of another way to get the donkey to this side of the bridge? Otherwise it will have to wait there."

    "Moving fast will give them less time to figure out what is going on. I say we start with the door right here."

    Twirling his twin kamas, and nodding at the warriors leading the way, "By all means....after you."

    Grack walks past the skeletons by the north door and reaches for the door-handle. As he turns it, fire emerges from eight small spouts in the wall surrounding the door and fills the part of the room anywhere close to the door.

    Grack falls, badly burned and still on fire; he's still breathing but unless he receives quick healing and quenching he's likely to be dead in seconds.

    The hobgoblin reels away from the fire blast, crouching low and launching into a roll. When he regains his feet he sees Grack down and badly burned, "@#&*! Should've checked for traps first."

    Quickly to his feet and rifling through his backpack, he pulls out a vial of pale blue liquid, squats and pours it down the badly injured orc's throat, "Drink this, we'll get you patched up....I promise."

    Fed potions by both Feagon and Tarak, Grack rises, uninjured. "Nasty trap," he comments. "Probably built in by the Maker of Death, not added recently."

    The door remains closed, having blasted Grack as soon as he turned the handle.

    The hobgoblin approaches the door cautiously, knowing full well what sort of damage the trap can do and how it is triggered.

    He searches for a way to disarm it without opening the door.

    Tarak finds the mechanism for the trap and painstakingly disables it; it takes about 20 seconds to disable once found.

    The door to the north should be safe to open now. As far as you can tell.
